The side speaking for the motion had an Alamo-determination to convince the MOAC and IAMBEC groups of the self-evidence of the motion.
There were the beginnings of a massacre as the Eukaryote side attacked on the points of 'evolution' and 'success'. Unfortunately for the Eukaryote side (speaking against) their robust response was far from lethal.
The fierce question-time defence of the Prokaryotes showed the lack of flexibility in the arguments of the Eukaryote side but the decision was still a shock: this House believes that Prokaryotes evolved more successfully than Eukaryotes.
The defence lawyer(s) would seem to have been asleep during the trial and the death penalty has been handed down.

Cheney: Well, the reason they keep mentioning Halliburton is because they're trying to throw up a smokescreen. They know the charges are false.They know that if you go, for example, to FactCheck.com (sic), an independent Web site sponsored by the University of Pennsylvania, you can get the specific details with respect to Halliburton.
FactCheck.org (which is what Dick meant):
Cheney wrongly implied that FactCheck had defended his tenure as CEO of Halliburton Co., and the vice president even got our name wrong. He overstated matters when he said Edwards voted "for the war" and "to commit the troops, to send them to war." He exaggerated the number of times Kerry has voted to raise taxes, and puffed up the number of small business owners who would see a tax increase under Kerry's proposals.
Edwards falsely claimed the administration "lobbied the Congress" to cut the combat pay of troops in Iraq, something the White House never supported, and he used misleading numbers about jobs.
